To Scotland With Love is the debut novel of author Patience Griffin. I thoroughly enjoyed this story! It was wonderful with fantastic characters who are so real and well crafted. I am totally in love with this small coastal town and want to move there straightaway. Graham Buchanan is hiding out from his movie star life. Cait Macleod has returned home to salvage what's left of her life. When she accidentally meets Graham, she sees an opportunity to reboot her journalism career by exposing his secret home town to the world. But will she be able to go through with it? 'Twas a verra good story and I canna wait to read more from this author! :)

The storyline grabbed me and I just had to read it. I was not disappointed! The characters were very likable and by the end of the book, I had become invested in them. To me, that is how you know a book is good! I loved how the book wasn't just about the romance, but also about the heroine's life and the other people in the town. I cannot believe that this is the author's first book. The writing was such that I would believe that she has been doing this for a very long time.

Couldn't put it down! I haven't read a romance novel for a very long time but I really enjoyed this story and look forward to the next book in Patience Griffin's Kilts and Quilts series.

Loved this book! I don't usually read romance novels but this one is fabulous and I couldn't put it down! I felt like I was transported to Scotland and I'm really looking forward to the next book in the series. I'm hoping there will be a trilogy movie deal starring Hugh Jackman and Emma Stone! Come on Hollywood! You'd better snack this story up quick.

To Scotland With Love is the first novel by newcomer, Patience Griffin. It is a wonderful, heartwarming, believable story. Her descriptions of the small town of Gandiegow and its people make you feel as though they are your friends. The heroine, Cait, is a journalist trying to get away from problems and restart her life and career in a new setting. By chance she meets Graham Buchanan, a famous movie star, and decides to do a story on him which might lead to getting back to her career. Her struggles with her conscience and her feelings for Graham make this story very compelling. I loved the story and will read it again and again. I can hardly wait for the second book in the Kilts and Quilts trilogy

A heart-touching read about a woman who has to stitch the pieces of her life back together in a Scottish town. A heroine you'll root for and a hero you'll fall in love with yourself. I definitely recommend this book to romance and women's fiction readers. You'll love it!

I cannot say enough about this book. Romantic read with amazing characters. I thought the Hollywood star was going to be sappy, but the story was so well written. Delightful read in a long time!

This is Book 1 in Ms. Griffin’s Kilts and Quilts series, but I happened to read it after Book 2…so I was able to gain more knowledge about the Scots people living in Gandiegow, Scotland, and what led up to Gabe and Emma’s story in Book 2.  I am amazed at Ms. Griffin’s knowledge about the language and habits of the Scots people.  I am of Scots ancestry myself and this contemporary story about the Scots in this tiny seacoast village made me feel like I was at home with them, that I understood them.  I cried when they had a funeral for a loved one, I cried when there were personal traumas and celebrations in the vilagers’ lives, I cried over their resolute faith in and love for each other, and I rejoiced in this special romance and promise of a wedding.  I fell in love with Graham, his son Duncan and grandson Mattie.  My heart hurt with Cait’s struggles from past failures and rejections and applauded her strength and honesty in changing her life onto a positive course.  I dearly loved this romance, and I dearly love this series.  I can hardly wait for Book 3!

This was a new author to me and I do not know why I did not pick up this series before. I enjoyed following Cait to her home town of Gandiegow. The town is a very small town where all the residents are very close and like one big family. Now in the beginning and for the whole first part of the book I did not like Cait. She made me so mad that she was wanting to rat our Graham and tell the world where he was. Even though I did not like Cait I felt bad for her and the way her Gran treated her when she came back home. But as the book goes along she grew on me. I loved Graham from the moment I met. For this being a romance book there was a lot of sadness in it. I did like the ending though. I am looking forward to reading the next book to see who we will get to know now.

This novel had what appeared to be the romance trifecta- a woman overcoming heartbreak, a change of scenery to Scotland, and a gorgeous kilt wearing Alpha male. Who wouldn’t want to check this one out? Journalist Caitie MacLeod, newly divorced, confidence low, escapes to her hometown in Scotland after many years away. She is estranged from her Grandmother, now her only living relative, and is determined to rebuild that relationship. When she arrives in Gandiegow, she is surprised to find actor Graham Buchanan in residence. Gandiegow is his refuge from the media, where he is able to be himself and not a movie star, and be near his son and grandson. The two of them have an instant connection, but Caitie is torn between her journalistic instincts, and finally finding a home in this small town. The villagers are a great mix of funny and sad characters that really added a lot of heart to this pretty simple storyline. Caitie and Graham certainly have chemistry, and their story is fun to read, but I really enjoyed the storyline between Caitie and her Gran. Her Gran had such fire and sass! She really made Caitie work at earning her love, so much so that when she finally coaxed a smile out of her, I felt that stab of pride and smiled too. The other storyline I enjoyed was with Duncan and Mattie, Graham’s son and grandson. Mattie was adorable, and as a small child, the men showed him warmth and love naturally. Graham and Duncan, on the other hand were somewhat cold to each other and it wasn’t until tragedy struck that the two men showed their feelings with each other. This story had quite a few surprises. The biggest being that it was so much more than a sweet romance novel. Lessons were learned and weaknesses were overcome. In the end, everyone, not just the two main characters, were united in love.

To Scotland With Love is the first in the Kilts and Quilts series by Patience Griffin. This contemporary romance based in Scotland is filled with quirky characters in a close-knit community who pull together when one of their own is in need. I laughed and I cried along with the townspeople. Ms. Griffin did an excellent job with this story. I look forward to the next book in the series.
